Integrating "GeoGebra" into IWB-Equipped Teaching Environments: Preliminary Results
Lavicza, Zsolt; Papp-Varga, Zsuzsanna
Technology, Pedagogy and Education, v19 n2 p245-252 Jul 2010
The aims of the project described in this paper are threefold. Firstly, the authors aim to examine how "GeoGebra", an open-source dynamic mathematics software application, can be used successfully for mathematics teaching in interactive whiteboard (IWB)-equipped teaching environments. Secondly, they intend to uncover how professional development programmes could be developed and improved for the joint use of "GeoGebra" and IWBs. Thirdly, they aspire to identify additional software features that would make "GeoGebra" more suitable for IWB environments. During the past year several workshops about the use of "GeoGebra" with IWBs were offered for teachers and teacher educators in schools and conferences in Hungary. Participant feedback and comments were collected at these events and training materials have been continuously improved. This paper reports on the preliminary data analysis from the first round of the project highlighting participants' recommendations for improving both software features and professional development workshops.
